Jason - Can you share the wheel/tire specs you are running? Also, did you only do the rear lowering kit or did you also do the front? Looks great!

Nice! having a good fresh suspension revives a car in ways you didn't realize had slipped over time. It's a nice feeling.

Thanks guys the handles much better you really don't know how bad the suspension can get until you fix the entire system. The wheels are 14 inch VTO with 185, 60 mounted. The 340 lbs return rate springs are an 1 inch lower then factory setup. So both the front and back have been lowered. At first I put a full front lowering kit but there was too much rubbing so I took the kit off. No issues since.
If you got with the 400 lbs return rate they are 1 1/2 inch lower..... has me thinking about making the switch. smileys with beer
